David Wolfe on the Importance of Eating Greens
Whether you're eating cooked food or are on a raw vegetable diet, everyone knows how important vegetables and fruits are. How come then, that we're not eating as many as we should?

And, when you put your own love into your food, it tastes better. Like mothers' home cooking tastes better than anything you can buy in a store or fast food restaurant. Everybody knows that. It's not explainable scientifically, but it's true. It's the same thing when having your own garden.
